    Retire too many too early, cutthroat culture,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep leaders in place for more than 18 months, stop moving the generalists around from one business to another.

    Great place to work (before purchase by Swiss Re) and GE (the parent company) is a great employer.

    I worked at GE

    Pros

    This was a company that consistently rewarded employees' exceptional performance, unlike Swiss Re. GE treated employees with respect and as human beings, not as fungible commodities. The benefits were good and pay was commensurate with industry standards. Even though GE Insurance was purchased by Swiss Re (not a change for the better especially after laying off 20% of the GE staff as soon as the deal went through), I recommend GE in general as an employer.

    Cons

    Being part of a massive corporation can be challenging in terms of communication. The pension/401(k)/stock savings plan structure was a bit complicated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company was purchased by Swiss Re in 2006, so there is no longer any GE Insurance leadership to advise.
